Here are a few photos that I took of the rehearsal dinner for my brother-in-law Jonathan and his lovely fiancee [now wife!] Erika. The Garber parents threw an amazing party at their house with outdoor seating under a tent strung with twinkle lights; a whole roasted pig (!); a delicious spread of salad and baked potatoes and homemade biscuits; drinks and snacks on the back deck; homemade pumpkin pies and apple crisps and Nutella-stuffed brown butter + sea salt chocolate chip cookies for dessert; and a fire pit for gathering and talking after dark. The whole party was a smashing success. So happy for you, Jon and Erika!
thank you, Abby, Clydette, and Gail, for your amazing help in the kitchen!

Last but not least, I would have loved to include a beautiful family portrait in this post, but... this is how our family portraits turned out that night:
